Chercher La Femme New
by L. Timmel Duchamp


Duchamp makes abundant challenges to gender norms and raises questions of what constitutes alienness, and the novel’s humanistic approach and unwavering commitment to Julia’s frank introspection go beautifully with a precisely detailed world. This thoughtful tale bears rereading and contemplation.

If Not Skin New
by Toby MacNutt


The pieces in If Not Skin are united by themes of embodiment—all that a body can be, all that can be a body, by magic, science, and experience. Not all bodies grant ease, but neither are all arduous bodies necessarily shaded with horror. Move through pain, pleasure, gender, freedom, age, and memory with every shapeshift, taking them in through richly textured, sense-heavy poetry and prose.

Ring of Swords New
by Eleanor Arnason


"The usual assumption," Ursula K. Le Guin notes in her new introduction to the novel, "is that if you threaten a war early in a novel, you’d better hurry up and get the bombs bursting in air. And they usually do. Novels that portray war as totally destructive and futile still focus on it—war is what they're about, war is central to them, just as it was central to the old epics that glorified heroes and battles. But a war not fought? What kind of subject is that?" Le Guin asks. Her answer? "It’s a beautiful subject for a novel, and Ring of Swords is a beautiful novel."

Liminal Spaces New
by Beth Plutchak


"Grit and sense of wonder and (often) hope: what more could you ask for? I strongly recommend this collection."
 —Eleanor Arnason, author of Ring of Swords and Hwarhath Stories

"If you read short fiction to be captured by an intoxicating fusion of the mysterious and the immediate, you’ve come to the right place."
 —Richard J. Chwedyk, Nebula Award-winning author of "Bronte's Egg"

Helen's Story New
by Rosanne Rabinowitz


Contrary to rumors of her death, Helen Vaughan is alive and well and living in Shoreditch, East London, stirring up the art world with a series of erotically-charged landscapes depicting the strange events of her youth. Brought up by a man who regarded her as loathsome, shuffled between boarding schools and foster homes, young Helen only found pleasure in visits from a secret companion. She made one other close friend, a girl called Rachel who disappeared in full daylight. After that, Helen was left with her companion. As she remembers her friend, Helen lays on each stroke of paint as if it can bring Rachel back or take her to where Rachel went. She paints to summon her companion once again, and show everyone what really lurks beyond the vanishing point...

Cosmovore New
by Kristi Carter


In this narrative collection of poems, the voice of the void reels and keens over meditations on consumption, the body, and the world. From the edges of the Milky Way to the confines of an eggshell, nowhere is safe from her hunger. In the tinny echoes of a much-hated musical triangle, explore the questions she faces about womanhood, motherhood, society, and a goat as she tries to reconcile those around her with her own identity.

Liberating the Astronauts
by Christina M. Rau


From the Pointer Sisters doing the Neutron Dance to David Bowman’s exclamation while traveling through the star gate near Jupiter; from stealing Joan Didion’s sadness to erasing F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Gatsby, this collection weaves its way through the awkward paradox of wanting freedom while fearing it. A little science, a bit of sci-fi, a little feminism, a bit of lit, in Liberating the Astronauts, we see that not fitting in gives us the freedom to stand out.
